When I was 17 years old I got pregnant...


"When I was 17 years old I got pregnant with my first child and then I got married to her father when I was 18. He was a very violent person so we divorced and I now have full custody of my daughter. When I was 19 I met someone and we had been dating for 8 months and decided to move in together... well I happen to get pregnant again and when I did he packed up his stuff and abandoned me. I had nowhere to go and didn't know what to do. So I knew the best choice for me was to get an abortion. I still think about it everyday and it bothers me but I'm hoping one day I can move on from it." —Anonymous
